Pregnancy Pregnancy

I can feel my heartbeat in my stomach....

So, I'm laying on my back, maybe a little slouching actually, and I am trying to see if I can feel my baby yet. It's my 2nd and I am 15 weeks along. I figure it's still early but you never know. Anyway, I'm feeling around and I can feel my heartbeat in my stomach. In fact, I can SEE my heart beat in my stomach! Why is that? It's weird and it confuses me when I am trying to feel for my baby. Is that normal and has anyone else had that happen?

It's probably an artery you are seeing pulse.  I've noticed it more since being pregnant.

You have a major artery running through your stomach.  I have always been able to see it...in fact it is quite noticable when I am not pregnant and laying on my back.

 i have seen my heart beat in my tummy as well but i have also seen the beat of her heat through my stomach when she is moving a lot and pushes up to the surface of my belly i can see the beat and i know its her heartbeat because i have a monitor to listen to her heart beat and the thumping i can see is at the exact time as the beats i hear
